How to move div to top and remove?

Tags: javascript,jquery,html,css

Problem :

I have two block inside container and under them button. I need, when I click on the button, then the first div slowly moves up and removed. I tried so:


<div class="container">
    <div class="block"></div>
    <div class="block"></div>
<button class="move">Click</button>


.container {
    border: 2px solid blue;
    display: inline-block

.block {
    width: 100px;
    height: 100px;
    background: red;
    margin: 5px;

.move {
    display: block


$(document).ready(function() {
    $('.move').click(function() {
        $('.block:first-child').animate({scrollTop: '-100px'}, 1000, function() {

But when I click on the button, then first .block just removed. I need to first move it up. How to fix it?


Solution :

You're animating the scrollTop of the element which will not have the effect you want. You can animate the height instead. However there is also the slideUp() function which will do this for you. Try this:

$('.move').click(function() {
    $('.block:first-child').slideUp(function() {

Example fiddle

If you have to do it without resizing the block, you can set overflow: hidden on the container, then animate the margin-top of the block itself.
